Just as last week, there are gazillion Eurovision birthdays to celebrate this week! Including one of the original performer of Eurovision 1956, Mathé Altéry.
Today brings a three Eurovision Birthday Celebrations! That is two birthday boys and one birthday girl. Two of them are born in the same year and two of them performed the same year at Eurovision.
Stoyan Yankulov, 62
Stoyan is a well know drummer in his country. He and Elitsa performed two times for Bulgaria as duet. Her birthday was on the 2nd of this month. First of all they sang in 2007 with the song “Water” and did a great job in Helsinki. After advancing from the semi final, the song made it all the way up to 5th place! The duet also performed in 2013 with the song “Sami Shampioni” but failed to qualify to the final in Malmö.
Katarina Hasprova, 46
Katarina performed on Slovakia´s part in 1998 with the song “Modlitba” meaning “Prayers”. She sang on stage in Birmingham. Sadly the ballad did not attract many points, only 8 points leaving it in 21st place out of 25.
Bledar Sejko, 46
Like Stoyan, Bledar also performed in Malmö in 2013. He sang with Adrian Lulgjuraj representing Albania. Not only did he sing and play the guitar, he composed the song as well. The song is called “Identitet” and is a rock and roll song based on the Albanian folk music. Their entry was one of the acts that failed to advance to the final.
